    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Crepe Batter

    Cheese Filling

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Crêpe Batter:.
    2. 2
      Sift the flour, sugar and salt into a bowl and set aside. Combine the egg, milk, butter and vanilla extract in another bowl and stir until smooth. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until blended into a relatively smooth batter. Let the batter rest for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. (The batter may be prepared to this point and stored in the refrigerator for up to 12 hours.).
    3. 3
      Heat a crêpe pan or small skillet over medium heat. Brush the pan with melted butter. Pour a scant 1/4 cup batter into the crêpe pan, swirling and tilting the pan to coat the bottom. Cook (reducing the heat if necessary) until the first side is set and has a little color, about 2 minutes. Use a thin metal or heatproof rubber spatula to loosen the crêpe and turn it over. Cook on the other side until set and very lightly colored (the crêpe will not be as dark on the second side as on the first), 1 minute more. Stack the crêpes between layers of parchment or waxed paper as you cook.
    4. 4
      Cheese Filling:.
    5. 5
      Purée the cottage cheese and cream cheese in a blender until very smooth. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the sugar, egg and vanilla extract by hand. Keep refrigerated until you are ready to finish the crêpes.
    6. 6
      Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly brush a medium baking dish with melted butter.
    7. 7
      Spoon or pipe about 2 tablespoons of the cheese filling onto each crêpe. Fold each crêpe into quarters, or fold the sides in to the center, then roll each crêpe up. Place the crêpes seam side down in the prepared baking dish. Drizzle with melted butter and bake until very hot, 8 to 10 minutes.
    8. 8
      Serve immediately, 2 crêpes per serving, with fruit or compote.

      FOR THE CHEESE FILLING ONLY: My oh my... what a disaster! I don't know if the recipe stating to put the cottage cheese and cream cheese in a blender actually meant a BLENDER or in a mixer. I put mine in the blender as directed for a few minutes until smooth, and was left with what looked like soup. I mixed in the sugar, egg, and vanilla by hand and still had a purely LIQUID filling which I knew would not even come close to working in a rolled up crepe. As a desperate attempt to salvage it, I added half a container of ricotta and the rest of the bar of cream cheese to make it thicker. This did make it slightly thicker but not what I was expecting. So disappointed as I was making this just 2 hours before a Polish dinner party that I was supposed to bring it to. Don't know what went wrong... :(

      I have my own crepe recipe, so I used only the filling recipe here... but what a hit. I've gotten more requests for this recipe and more requests from my family for another batch than I have for anything else I've made them. I'm do wish I didn't have to go through the extra step of baking them. In the end, it's not that big of a deal and I'll experiment to see if it's really necessary or if I can perhaps get the filling to solidify enough if I just add it to the pan with the finished crepe and fold. Phenomenal with cherry jam on top.
